We’ve featured a few articles on this page about our good friend Andy Dennis and his outstanding work for Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders). It’s a cause that is very close to our hearts. MSF is an international medical humanitarian organisation providing aid in nearly 80 countries. It operates free of any political, military, or religious agendas, bringing impartial assistance to those most in need. Although MSF is continually operating in difficult situations to fight the effects of disease and violence, most recently it has been in the media due to the important fight against the ebola virus.
Now you have the opportunity to do something that will make a real difference by supporting MSF and at the same time having a unique chance of winning one of 10 limited edition prints donated by artists from the worlds of art and music, including Pete McKee, Goldie and Peter Doherty among others. You can view the works at Redhouse Originals Gallery in Harrogate, or at redhouseoriginals.com. Tickets are priced at £10 each and are available from Bean & Bud, from Redhouse Originals in person or online. The draw will be made at 6pm on Monday 23 March at Bean & Bud over a little glass of something!
Andy says: “At the end of 2014 I worked for four weeks in the Ebola Management Centre in Kailahun, Sierra Leone. There were many tragedies in this time but also many beautiful successes. I have looked into the eyes of frightened and sick people and I know that without Médecins Sans Frontières many of them would have suffered and died alone. I am proud to work for an organisation that says that this is not acceptable and steps up to be counted where and when they are most needed.”
All proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to Médecins Sans Frontières.
